(Quote) This was a personal crusade of mine in internal (balance team) discussions during Sewlek's development of the balance mod (which eventually became B250).

The first Cologne event, Archaea vs. Exertus. Just an amazing experience altogether. Even after playing in over 30 tournament finals, playing live for the first time was a unique experience. The event also happened just a week after the game was lau…

(Quote) And that pretty much answers the developer side of the question, as I proposed earlier.
Thanks for clearing up the licensing question, it turns out my memory was just as fuzzy as I feared -- I remembered it backwards!
Ok, yeah, my bad. That actually clears things up a bit. At that point they were set on using Source to power the game (as evidenced by all the comments about Source in the blog posts I linked and the blog post you quoted from) but they wanted to use…This is the dynamic infestation concept post (unfortunately the video seems to be broken): http://unknownworlds.com/ns2/dynamic-infestation-2/

From a developer's point of view: Only UWE knows if it was worth it or not. That's an assessment of their bottom-line and player retention numbers.

Comment by fanatic April 2014Good points and nice writeup.

It wasn't a big problem, but it was a bit annoying.
Update your signature, Tane, you backstabbing bast.Well, Godar have the fourth seed, whilst Titus has the second seed, so that wouldn't actually be the wrong way to set up the groups, herakl3s. It would have to be done according to seedings though. It should be something like the following:
